Tattvajaya (तत्त्वजय) refers to the “levels of reality”.—The larger part of the Mālinīvijayottara’s Yogapāda is concerned with the conquest of the levels of reality (tattvajaya). This is prefaced by a survey of preliminary obligations. The basic idea of the tattvajaya, the conquest of the levels of reality, or bhūmikājaya, the conquest of the planes, is of course taught in other śaiva scriptures, but no work available tome even approximates to the level of detail found in the Mālinīvijayottara. The crucial innovation is the idea that it is possible to attain to the highest state of Śiva not only by traversing along the tattvādhvan to ever higher realities, but that one may stop at any given reality and then ascend obliquely through fifteen levels of subjective experients, telescoping them inwards as one progresses towards the experiential mode of the highest perceiver.
